I looked into doing this as I suggested yesterday, namely modifying the
buildfarm scripts, and soon decided that it would be a mess; there are
too many cases where "pg_ctl stop" is not invoked directly by the script.

I'm now in favor of applying the PGCTLTIMEOUT patch Noah proposed, and
*removing* the two existing hacks in run_build.pl that try to force -t 120.

The only real argument I can see against that approach is that we'd have
to back-patch the PGCTLTIMEOUT patch to all active branches if we want
to stop the buildfarm failures.  We don't usually back-patch feature
additions.  On the other hand, this wouldn't be the first time we've
back-patched something on grounds of helping the buildfarm, so I find
that argument pretty weak.


OK. I can put out a new release as required.
